Do you or someone you know have Special Needs
that would require special assistance in the event of a fire,
weather related or other emergency situation?
Persons with Special Needs are defined as,
“Individuals who are likely to require
assistance in excess of that provided to the general public in a
time of disaster, particularly in the event that large scale
evacuation is necessary.” This could include those who are
deaf, blind, bedridden, mentally impaired, without radio or
television, or lacking transportation necessary to evacuate.
A website has been developed to collect
information about persons with Special Needs living in private
residences within Northumberland County.
